"C.J. and Josh Get Married" save the date commission
Back in January, my friend Josh Goldman commissioned me to do artwork for the save the dates for his wedding. As per his request, I made a poster with him and his then-fiancé, now wife, C.J., in the middle of the engagement ring that he created for her, with scenes from their childhood in the background, and their present selves in a tug of war with their dog Scrappy. Done entirely in Photoshop, the original artwork was completed on February 5. Unbeknownst to me at the time, there were a few minor errors: the size of the prongs for the pear-shaped diamonds, and the wrong colors given for Scrappy and the sapphires on the ring. Josh and C.J. loved my work so much, they wanted everything to be perfect, so they could have it printed out as a full-sized poster and framed. Pictured above is the poster with the final edits, which were completed on July 7.
